Linda La’Nell Lynn was born January 17, 1947, to Earl James “Pete” and Mary Frances Bowen (Collum)
in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She was the oldest of four with brothers Bill, Bob and Jeff. She was married to Ed Lynn on August 19, 1967. Linda welcomed her step-children, Eddie and Lisa, with open arms.
She and Ed had two children together, Rocky and Ginger.
They lived in both Coeur d’Alene and Spokane before moving to the Royal Slope in 1973.
Linda had many jobs including bank teller, waitress, farmer, combine operator, bus driver, raiser of chickens, convenience store clerk/cook with her buddies; but her most beloved “jobs” were that of mom, homemaker
and friend. She was very creative and enjoyed many hobbies. No matter where she was or what she was doing, Linda brought her contagious smile as well as fun and laughter. Even while suffering with her various medical issues she always had a good attitude and found something to share a laugh about.
Linda was very well known, almost famous, for her cooking, her cookie making (for the sheer numbers she baked not to mention the delicious taste), and her annual Halloween Chili feed with all the
hand-made characters and decorations.
